Didn't find your answer?

Client/ex-client refusing to report gift of let property to daughter. Is it suffient to report using HMRC Fraud Hotline or should I submit a SARs report.

SAR to comply with your AML obligations.

It has been about 5 years since I last did one but you register to use SAR Online and then complete the report from there. The send a report online link can be accessed from this page https://www.gov.uk/guidance/money-laundering-regulations-report-suspicio...

Are you also happy that your user name is anonymous enough in this post? May be worth messaging the moderators if not.

Thanks. I had found the Web site, but the HMRC Fraud report looked a lot less effort!

If it's your client you can't report it to HMRC, as the information you possess is confidential between you and the client. SAR is the only way.

I agree. Do please use a SAR glossay code XXF4XX looks a good option.

The last SAR I submitted was 2 or 3 years ago and I did that (and the previous ones I’ve done) via the paper route. Lot easier IMO than pratting around with online submission, assuming it is still an option of course.
